Oakland Avenue, before Highway 40 was built, must have been a beautiful, slightly more middle-class version of Lindell on the north side of Forest Park.

But alas, the highway came crashing through, and the roar of the automobile now pervades what must have once been a beautiful part of Forest Park.

No alleys! The garages sit behind the house, with a driveway to the front.
